A dog in LaSalle has lost his eye after a coyote attack.

LaSalle police say it happened around 9:30am on June 23rd in the 1500 block of Bouffard.

The dog owner told police that he was in his kitchen when he heard his dog yelping outside. Upon exiting to the rear yard, he observed a coyote leaving the property.

The male found a significant wound to his dog’s head and jaw area and rushed the dog to the vet. The dog required emergency surgery and suffered a loss of an eye.

After returning home at around 11pm, he checked his property for the coyote and spotted it at the end of his driveway, where it stood for about five minutes before leaving the area. Due to the time of the evening, he was not able to get a clear picture.

There have been several coyote attacks in the town, and officials remind you to keep an eye on your pets when they are outside.
